Renan Cerdeiro


Hometown:  Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Renan Cerdeiro was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At a very young age, he began training in various dance styles at the Escola de Dança Alice Arja in Rio de Janeiro. In 2008, Cerdeiro was named a finalist at the Prix de Lausanne in Switzerland, and that same year was awarded a scholarship to train at Miami City Ballet School. Within two years founding artistic director Edward Villella invited him to join Miami City Ballet as a company apprentice. In 2013, he was promoted to principal dancer by current artistic director Lourdes Lopez.

Since joining, Cerdeiro has toured with the company performing at the New York City Center, the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, in Ottawa and Vancouver, Canada, as well at the Bolshoi in Moscow as part of the Benois de la Danse Gala. Cerdeiro was named by Dance Magazine as one of the world’s “Top 25 Artists to Watch in 2011.”
